Give me a bunch of too-ripe bananas and I’ll treat you to these wee gems… enjoy!
LUXE / HEALTH Banana + Oat Cookies
2 ripe bananas
2 cups oats
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup choc chips (substitute for raisins or chopped nuts if you want to ditch the chocolate)
1 tbsp. rice malt syrup
1/4 cup coconut oil
Pinch ground ginger
- Preheat your oven to 140C. Then, in a large bowl, mash the ripe bananas well.
- Add the oats, coconut, choc chips, rice malt syrup, coconut oil and a dash of ginger powder (or cinnamon if you prefer) and mix well.
- Line a baking tray with baking paper then pop spoonfuls of the mixture onto the tray – should make 12–14 cookies.
- Cook for around 45 minutes at this low heat, then crank your oven to 180C for another 10–15 minutes to crisp up the outside. The cookies should look nice and golden brown but still be chewy on the inside so just trust your instincts, and keep an eye on them.
I don't know about you, but during summer, I begin to crave lighter dishes for dinner...
Craving something salty? These purple carrot wedges are the perfect snack.
There is nothing more satisfying than this tasty bone marrow dish, hot out of the oven!
